"Dozens of Chinese students, carrying banners and shouting slogans, protested outside Japan’s embassy in Seoul on Thursday to show their support for Beijing in a bitter territorial row with Tokyo."

Gee what a shocker, Chinese students protesting in one of the PRC's territories.

I wonder if the PRC owned Korean government was ordered to pay for the students expenses?

Demonstration made of 40 people is enough to make news?

Isn't that the attitude when Japanese protest against Koreans?

So South Korea is now a Chinese Province? Must have missed it when it happened.

Take this matter to the International Court of Justice and be done with it.

S.Korea won't take it to the ICJ because they know they will lose.

The communist Chinese are helping N.Korea with their nuclear missile capability and will take back S.Korea soon. All they are waiting is for Japan to bow down to China so China can take Senkaku.

Chinese students...are they international students or live in Korea permanently? Pretty sure with most visas you are not allowed to engage in political behavior. I know it was a stipend on the teaching visa I had when I worked in Korea.

Pretty sure you're correct, but right now Korea is too scared of the PRC to do anything.

Also Korea needs China on it's side concerning Takeshima island since they will not take the Japanese offer to go before the ICJ.

Now concerning that I always find it odd that when China starts protesting about the Senkaku Islands Korea starts up with Takashima.

Always seem like Korea is following orders or they are working together.

Me thinks you didn't see one water bottle being thrown, lest the K-Cops (Real Police, not to be in any way confused with J-Cops. or J-Oops) would be arresting somebody, none of this, "Don't do that again, or I'll tell your mom!"

Have you been to Korea? I live here and the cops here are as much a joke as their Japanese counterparts. Just check out the Korean news sites but a catalogue of scandal and outright buffoonery. Sure they can act tough when encased in riot armour and there smacking around students or farmers.

Why do the students want to bother about the island ? "This makes us furious because this is stealing,” Wei Shijie, president of the student association, told journalists." It's not like if u win u gonna get that island for yourself and u are only helping the goverment when they actually suck your money dry.... Waste energy and time just for helping selfish goverment.... no benefits....
